Cant Empty Trash

My Trash is filled with very large files which I deleted from my Time Machine Backups.

I tried to empty the trash many times and each time it took an age to prepare and delete and even then, it didn't delete it.

How do I force the trash to empty and to empty quickly rather than take 12 hours?

Is there a command line I can use or anything else which will do the job almost instantly?
